Yes the Conde storyline was awful. Making a rape victim an unsympathetic character was awful. I stuck with the show thought. Sorry to see it end. Shame history did not have Mary and Elizabeth have some type of understanding.

I read a biography of Elizabeth and Mary as well as seeing documentaries on them and no doubt that Mary Stuart made a lot of bad decisions which came back to haunt her later. Marrying a man her subjects did not approve of and her final bad decision was going to England and expecting Elizabeth to help her. Hers was a tragic life which was a shame.

As to the show, Adelaide Kane portrayed Mary Stuart well and I so enjoyed the series. I would have liked for it to have lasted one more season or two but I have accepted this.
